FOXCONN BlackOps X48 Motherboard

Packaging and Contents
The Foxconn BlackOps motherboard packaging is extremely attractive and eye-catching. The packaging itself features a really cool black, grey and white theme. On the front of the box, there is a group of soldiers decked out in army special forces regalia. The rear of the package highlights the features of the Foxconn BlackOps motherboard - including the 4-in-1 northbridge cooler and charts illustrating the increased voltage provisions of the motherboard. The packaging also features a welcome carry handle and the other side provides a detailed specifications list.
Foxconn have included a foldout front cover on the box which gives you a glimpse as to what is contained within, and the top of the foldout section details the technologies built into the motherboard.
Removing the outer shell of the Foxconn BlackOps packaging reveals an inner box that houses the motherboard and its associated goodies. The inner packaging is nicely compartmentalised to provided adequate protection to the hardware contained within. This box could take a serious flogging from a courier and still arrive with hardware intact. Removing the top box containing the motherboard, soundcard and 120mm fan, I was pleasantly surprised to see the inclusion of another two cardboard boxes which house the accessories.
To say that the Foxconn BlackOps comes with some accessories would be the understatement of the year. Accessories by the truckload would be a more accurate description. There is quite simply so much stuff included here, you feel like you're getting exceptional value for money. Although, I will say that some of it feels a little cheap - like the barbs for example which feel less substantial than those of say EK. Furthermore, the DICE/LN2 tower for the NB 4-in-1 cooler is made of plastic instead of light gauge metal. The dog tags too feel a little like an afterthought, as many enthusiasts probably wouldn't even give them a second look. I have included a list of the items included in the Foxconn BlackOps box below:
However, if you ever needed further confirmation that the Foxconn BlackOps is targeted at the performance enthusiast, the variable resistors that are thrown in should bring you screaming back to reality. Foxconn has also seen fit to include a Perspex benching board, which is quite simply unheard of as part of any motherboard inclusion package that I have ever seen before. In addition, Foxconn has included two trim-pots ready for volt mods(20K and 50K). Man how cool is that! I'm feeling
as giddy as a schoolgirl like a kid in a candy store.
